The plate was a child in the school can buy less than 5,000 rubles.

Most parents are not willing to spend on gadgets for school astronomical. And they are suitable for this case is very practical, giving priority to the laptop, but not the smartphone for the same price. This is the conclusion reached by experts Hi-Tech Mail.Ru

It turned out that 73 percent of Russians are gradually upgrading their gadgets, and only 9% of the beginning of the school year is called the main reason for the purchase of new equipment. 48 percent of respondents are willing to spend on gadgets for the school year to only 5,000 rubles. The next most popular answer should be “more than 25,000 rubles,” which, apparently, is buying a laptop or smartphone. So said 23 percent of voters.

The budget for 5000 rubles at first glance seems small. With this sum is quite possible to purchase a tablet based on Android – even though it will not be the flagship of the industry, but for a child it would be enough.

If you look at the price segments of 10 to 20 thousand rubles, you can pay attention to the laptop on a modern platform, Intel Core i3, for example, ASUS VivoBook S200E or Acer Aspire V5. Or go to a specialized “school” leptopov.

For example, the company introduced new models iRu school netbook under the long title “iRU School Netbook transformer 10,1” ‘on the basis of certified platform Intel Education Solutions. good competitor – the “educational” tablet from Intel with a full suite of applications: programs for reading e-books e-Reader, to review the scientific disciplines and analyzing data, and drawing tools.

Devices higher price category is not so specialized. In the end, print the essay allows even the most doroguschy ultrabook. Another thing is that some device for its price should be able to do it yourself.

Schools have not yet decided whether they need online tutorials. But unpretentious educational laptops are practically at each first grader. Even the parents are trying to get a useful gadget for child classes.

However, the nationwide survey of experts Hi-Tech Mail.Ru showed an interesting trend. 40 percent of respondents believe that the technologies reduce children’s interest in learning. In general, then, with good reason – why else in the so-called “training” laptops good video card for gaming?

9 percent still believe that technology impair the health of children. Like, vision deteriorates and posture, and from the emissions cap will not save even the foil.

Less than half of the respondents referred to a positive. 21 percent believe that due to increased gadgets amount of information to digest, 17 percent – that the technology better prepare students for future work.

Conventional plates are considered suitable for the study 19 percent of those surveyed, graphics tablets gained 5 percent of the vote. E-readers have preferred only 8 percent of respondents.

In this case, the majority (54 percent) still prefer paper electronic information sources (46 percent). As for the most common applications for mobile devices used in the study, the first by a wide margin (34 percent) took the dictionaries and translators. In second place (17 percent) – a variety of formulas and rules. Specialized programs (for example, drawing or construction of analytical charts) use less than 10 percent of the respondents.
